PICKFORD GREEN TOWER RESIDENCE
LEED Platinum Home
Culver City, CA
Creating an indoor, vertical garden and heat evacuation tower that purifies and cools the air
This single-family home has many green features. The house’s highlight is the three-story vertically landscaped tower that is integrated into the design for both aesthetic value and to help cool the interior. As the hot air passes across and out the top of the tower, the air is purified by plant material. This home received a LEED PLATINUM rating from the United States Green Building Council.
The home has been visited by hundreds of architects and community members to learn more about green building technique, both during construction and after.
